Rav Glazerson finds Torah code connected Rav Berland to End of Days
Recently, Rav Matityahu Glazerson, the Torah Codes expert, has put out a number of videos sharing his insights into the connection between Rav Eliezer Berland, and the end of days.
(In one video, Rav Glazerson, shlita, even made mention of One in a Generation, the first volume, where Rav Glazerson appears as one of Rav Berland’s oldest friends. The two holy men have known each other since they were teenage bochurim, learning together in the Kfar Chassidim yeshiva, near Haifa.)
Rav Berland is connected to Moshiach Ben Yosef
In his latest video, Rav Glazerson explains how he’s found more connections between Rav Eliezer Berland, shlita, and the words ‘Moshiach ben Yosef’, all of which is directly connected to the subject of the imminent geula. Here’s a little of how he explained his findings.
Firstly, Rav Glazerson explained how the words “ניצוץ משיח” – the ‘spark of Moshiach’ comes to 604, in gematria. Next, he shows how the words “אליעזר ברלנד” – Eliezer Berland – also comes to 604, in gematria. The following phrases also add up to the same gematria of 604:
(This is he, Moshiach Ben Yosef and Moshiach ben David): ‘זהו משיח בן יוסף ודוד’ – 604
(Rabbi Yehudah the Prince): ”רבי יהודה הנשיא” – 604
“What will befall you at the End of Days”
Rav Glazerson then shows how all of this is connected to the passage from Bereishit, (49:1) Asher yikra etchem (what will befall you). These three words taken together, plus the kollel makes ‘תשע”ו – the Hebrew date of 5776, which Rav Glazerson reminds is the year when Rav Berland has consistently told us the geula process actually began in earnest.
Rav Glazerson explained:
The spark of Moshiach returns in every generation
“The Ben Hayehoda, speaking about the gematrias found in Tractate Sanhedrin (98), said that it was accepted by them that in every generation, the spark of the Moshiach ben Yosef would be reincarnated into one of the Tzaddikim of the generation. This is the same sort of thing that Chazal said about Moshe Rabbenu, that in every generation, a spark of Moshe would come back inside the Tzaddik of that generation.
“It’s also written in the Sefer HaLikutim of the holy Arizal, on the passage 3:26 in the book of Devarim, that Rabbenu the Arizal was actually a spark of Moshiach ben Yosef.”
Rav Glazerson continues:
Berland = spark = Ben Yosef
“In truth, we found the name ברלנד – ‘Berland’, next to the words ‘Ben Yosef’ and nitzotz (spark). And all this only appears one time, next to the word ‘Ephraim’. It’s known that the Moshiach ben Yosef comes from the tribe of Ephraim. We also found the words, ben shmonim shana – ‘he was 80 years old’, which is Rav Berland’s age…
“And this is the verse where it is found (Bereishit 49:1):
“Then Yaakov called for his sons and said: “Come together, and I will tell you what will befall you in the End of Days.” And all of these words are found mamash, right next to it.”
 It’s a common feature of gematria than an additional ‘one’ can be added to the final number. This additional one is known as the ‘kollel’.
